Leave a legacy

Legacy gifts fund a growing number of Hand in Hand’s programs. After taking care of family and friends, please consider our hardworking mothers and fathers in your will

Why leave a legacy

Maybe you’ve already helped Hand in Hand lift hundreds of families out of poverty. Or maybe your charitable giving has supported other causes. Either way, with the developing world set to grow by more than 2 billion people over the next 35 years, the crisis of poverty and unemployment is not going away anytime soon.

By leaving a gift in your will you’ll be helping some of the world’s poorest people, mainly women, gain the skills they need to work their way out of poverty – for good, without relying on handouts. But your contribution won’t stop there. Hand in Hand’s members spend the money they earn on their children’s health and education. With full stomachs and inquiring minds, the sky is the limit for future generations. And so the cycle continues.

“Wealth management extends well beyond one’s lifetime. By planning for the future and setting up a charitable legacy trust, I feel a real sense of gratification and peace of mind since I feel I have properly taken care of things.” Francis Claessens | Chairman of Peers, The Private Wealth Network | Hand in Hand supporter
